A New CFWclinic in Kenya--Open December 17, 2008

In Fall 2008, 15 new CFWclinics were opened in Kenya, bringing the total in Kenya to 82 outlets! Congratulations to the 15 new CFW franchisees who have successfully completed CFW training and are now open for business serving their communities with lifesaving healthcare. I've uploaded a photo of one of the new outlets--click the phrase below to view it.

The NOW television program on PBS aired an 18-minute documentary on the CFWshops network in August 2008, a follow-up to their Emmy-award-winning documentary of May 2007.
